They will be able to use their math notes.

2015 SPELLING BEE
It’s that time again when students try to “bee” the smartest speller at The BOB! Our school wide Spelling Bee will be December 11th. In order to give students the chance to prepare, individual “hives” (classrooms!) hold their bees next week. My class will be holding the class bee on Friday, Nov. 20th at 12:30 PM. At that time, winners from my class will be given a list to study. Each class will have two representatives, and one alternate in case one of the spellers is absent on December 11th.
Monday-Library & Strings
Tuesday-Art & Band
Wednesday-Counselor, PE & Strings
Thursday-Music, PE, & Strings
Friday- Computer, Music & Strings
Your child will be bringing home a double sided Progress Report today. Please sign and return the report by Wednesday, Nov. 18th. I just want to be sure that the grades are being communicated. I want to remind you that this is MID-QUARTER grades and that your child has quite a bit of time to pull their grade up, if they are concerned. I have 2 reading grades that I did not get entered, before printing the reports as well.
